Of all the resort design ideas, creating a modern luxury bedroom is the most attainable. While you might be asking yourself how can I make my small bedroom luxurious? We have the perfect solutions for you:
· Take advantage of the floor space in your bedroom and install a luxuriously soft bed. Whether this is a California king or a simple queen, purchasing a quality mattress is key to a hotel bedroom design –and even better for a good night’s sleep.
· Invest in your bedroom accessories with high-thread-count linens, soft lighting, and plenty of cozy pillows to elevate your bedroom.
· Balance out pops of color with restful shades in light neutrals and organic hues, like pale greens, white creams, and subtle wood elements.

A trend that has certainly picked up this year is updating master baths with resort and spa design elements. Upgrade your bathroom with pieces that inspire relaxation and small moments of peace. Whether this is a full remodel with a freestanding soaking tub and a floating marble vanity, or smaller updates like a copper faucet and tile backsplash, don’t forget the little touches. Small details are everything, so pay attention to light fixtures, greenery, bath mats, and paint colors.

Perfect for your summer cottage or lake home, outdoor showers add an element of serenity when it comes to your morning routine. Plus, outdoor showers make for great spaces to rinse off when you’re just getting in from a day of sand and fun at the beach or when you’re washing up after an afternoon of weeding the garden.

There’s nothing better than sharing a home-cooked meal with friends and family. Transform your dining room into a gorgeous gathering space by adding a large table with cozy chairs. Make an existing fireplace the focal point, or install a unique chandelier to add character. After eating, the fun doesn’t need to stop –a comfortable dining room can transform into a sitting area or game room for continued family time.
Attain the beach resort look by adding a beach cabana to the backyard or installing a wet bar next to your grill station on the patio. Personalized bars are a great resort house design as they give you a designated space to entertain guests. Plus, they make excellent additions to family dinner nights. The best part about having a bar at home is not needing to go out for drinks! Customize your home bar with one-of-a-kind accessories, from bottles and glassware to silly aprons and personalized bar logos.

The popularity of open-air living has grown extensively over the past few years as people look to seamlessly blend their indoor and outdoor spaces. The simple joy of transitioning your activities outdoors on a sunny day is made simple with modern glass door designs. Think about installing waterproof tile or luxury vinyl floors near your double glass doors that lead from your dining area out to the backyard. You won’t regret doubling your entertainment space with an outdoor kitchen or a blended lounge space.
